An arrest for reckless driving in Rhode Island is a serious matter. Prosecutors throughout the state take this crime very seriously as they consider it a crime that puts the public in danger. This is not a charge that you’d want to defend yourself and you should contact an experienced RI criminal defense attorney immediately. A conviction for reckless driving can result in imprisonment for up to one (1) year and a mandatory license suspension. Additionally, a reckless driving conviction can remain on your criminal record for up to five years!
Rhode Island’s reckless driving law prohibits operating a vehicle so recklessly that the safety of the public is endangered. This includes conduct such as fleeing an officer or drag racing.
